I think the Clippers will probably win by 25 or 30+. As crazy as it seems I don't trust them if the game is relatively close in the 4th quarter.

I agree. They should win, but they "should" have won being up 15 in the second half of the previous games too.

Yep. I can chalk blowing game 5 up the desperation/closeout game thing, so while still embarrassing it's no big deal. To do the exact same thing two days later isn't quite as forgivable. I'm of the mindset that it can't possibly happen again and I think I'm right, but I also thought that same thing on Sunday afternoon.

It's admittedly insane, but it feels like it's either a Clippers blowout or the Nuggets win tonight.

Saying the Clippers will probably win by 30? That's not how this is going to play out.

I'm rooting against them so that tends to give teams a pretty big boost.

All during the playoffs the commentators are wondering what's wrong with Kemba...he's too small to get his shot off against playoff defense Doris. He's killing us.

First 10 minutes of the game and the last two minutes of the third quarter just atrocious.

I just texted a buddy the Jimmy staring in purple suit .gif from when he was on the Bulls with the caption "me watching Jimmy close."

Kemba was mostly awful trying to force things. Great block. Butler's facial hair is still horrendous. Should be a great series.

He seemed to have no problem blowing by Butler on the drive.
